The Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards is a TIA-administered event in support of the Toy Industry Foundation

An exciting few months lie ahead as the toy industry prepares for the 2017 Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards!

  • During October, a nomination committee comprised of play experts, journalists, academics, retailers, and other toy experts will determine which products and properties will be selected for the official TOTY ballots. 
  • On November 21st the TOTY finalists will be announced just in time for the Holiday 2016 shopping season. This date will also mark the launch of FIVE ballots – one each for Consumers, Retailers (mass and specialty), Media, and TIA members; each ballot will factor into the determination of the TOTY 2017 winners.
  • And on Friday evening, February 17th, “Toy Fair Week” will kick off with the TOTY awards ceremony and Toy Industry Hall of Fame induction at The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City.
